ok.. so it's been in there for 2 weeks. After 11 days I added 2 lbs of corn sugar and a good starter of WLP99. It had a good krausen at that time but no bubbling. For the past 3 days since then it's been bubbling like a madman. temp is a cool 66F.. hope it turns out as expected. Haven't tested Gravity since it started so I am computing the OG at the 1.127. Not much else to go by. We'll see how much attenuation I get in the next week. After that I need my chamber to crash some dark belgian ale I'm bottling. I think at that point house temps will be fine. (I keep the place cool though this summer is oddly hot with it getting above 70 inside sometimes.)

Update: OG 1.127 after 3 years FG: 1.014 WOWWWWWW That 15.2%ABV per ProMash

Taste is smoothe and very hoppy.. Still going to let it sit a few weeks then crash and dry hop. I think this is going to turn out as good or better than I had hoped!!!!

I just racked a barleywine that I brewed two weeks ago. 1.095 OG. Pitched a slurry of US-05 that I got from an Arrogant Bastard Clone I brewed 2 weeks prior and hit it with 90 sec of pure O2. After a week I added 2 pounds of sugar boiled in a quart of water. Took a SG reading yesterday - 1.014! This is an ABV around 12.5%. Definitely can taste the alcohol, but not in a bad way. Doesn't seem too thin either. US-05 rocks !

Finally ready to serve this beer. Drinking it tomorrow. I tasted it and I am happy with it. It has a lot of piney hop bitterness. I like it. It is way smoother to drink (for someone who likes a bitter IPA) than the 15% ABV would lead you to believe. I haven't had more than a couple oz at a time yet though. Will do that tomorrow.
